An integral part of EPOCA (the European Project on OCean Acidification), an EU FP7 Integrated Project launched in June 2008 for 4 years, involves a team of scientists from around Europe travelling to the Arctic to  advance our understanding of the biological, ecological, biogeochemical, and societal implications of ocean acidification. This research will be carried out in two sections, begining with a Benthic campaign in May 2009 and followed by a Pelagic campaign in the summer of 2010.

The EPOCA consortium brings together more than 100 researchers from 27 institutes and 9 European countries (Belgium, France, Germany, Iceland, The Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom).
